Good summer work, safe and fast-paced
Engineering hand for a Pipeline Field Engineer (Former Employee), Fort McMurray, AlbertaOctober 12, 2014
I would start a typical day by examining what tasks needed to be completed. Once on site I would write a safety form for the task. I would help the field engineer by measuring, calculating and holding the measure level for the engineer to shoot angles with a transit. Since I was the only crew member for a team that usually consists of three or more – more... I held a lot of responsibility with the field engineer and managed most tasks. The most enjoyable part of the job was working close with the environment and learning about field engineering, – less

Tipical Corprate work place
I&R tech (Current Employee), BC, CanadaOctober 8, 2014
Pros: no one else wants to work in my location
Cons: never no who your manager is and to many pay cuts here, pay structure sucks.
Work day not typical it changes daily you take the good and the bad Days.
Learned What Not to do the next time.

Management is terrible lots of personnel changes in the upper ranks in this outfit. Not very stable and the bean counters order the work vehicle's.
Co-workers are decent for the most part however there are the odd lazy ones that don't take – more... pride in their work and you are just another number in the Corporate world here.

Working alone and the end of the day. – less

Laid off due to "lack of work" in the middle of a project
Carpenter (Former Employee), JoffreOctober 1, 2014
Pros: money
Cons: top heavy, heavy handed management who doesn't see a good worker right in front of them.
I was a carpenter there for 6 months. General foremen and foremen all participate in different forms of "Harassment" even though they say they strongly enforce it. I had to switch crews after about 3 months because the foreman on my crew was so rude and abusive to the journeymen on the crew. We'd always see him and the civil GF laughing about stuff. – more... Hmm I wonder what?! 6 months into the job the General foreman gets me singled out for saying something I did not say. 2 days later, laid off. Meanwhile people who just got hired are still there. So many people in the field that liked me were shocked at how they treated me. It has since happened to another solid guy I know. Except they made sure he was banned from the client. They're mean and I won't work for them unless certain people aren't there on site. This is the kind of treatment that keeps Alberta's "labor shortage" going. – less

Horrible place
Electrician (Former Employee), Nisku abSeptember 11, 2014
Hired as an electrician, treated badly by foreman and general foreman. Was fired and never told why, probably because I stood up for myself to general foreman, big misunderstanding. Everyone on crew quit, bad place to work.

Productive, New Learning Experience
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Fort St. John, BCAugust 21, 2014
Pros: learning experience
Cons: minimal room to grow within company
My overall experience while working for Ledcor has been okay. I have learned many new skills that I used to have minimal experience. Working with Excel daily has been so beneficial I believe to finding another career. My biggest struggle with this job is that it is contract work, so it has left me in a position to find a new job after an early shut – more... down. – less

The work place in Oil Industry
Health, Safety and Environmental Coordinator (Former Employee), albertaJuly 2, 2014
Pros: salaried vacation
Cons: long hours
The oil industry can be most challenging and complex with broad job descriptions and vast industrial requirements.

It can be a demanding job, but most rewarding at times. If the environment is suitable for the ideal candidate, the experience of working within the trade can allow for an advisors role to become most successful in the future.

LTS is terrible
Technician (Former Employee), OkanaganJune 1, 2014
Never been treated so badly by a company, constant wage cuts with increased workload. Work life balance is non-existent, constant screw ups with pay, can't ever get answers from management as it's a very "pass the buck" mentality. Put in three years with the company only to lose the job in a mass layoff so new techs could be hired at lower wages. Good – more... riddance! – less

Pros: good corporate culture
